I recall particularly his letter of november 16, 1939. It was the time Eddie Anderson s Iowa Iron men were thrilling the nation. He told me of their handicaps but How they always kept on fighting that eight of the boys had played the entire sixty minutes of the previous three games. He said the thing i noticed most that Eddie Anderson has accomplished is the instilling into the players a spirit of never give in he recalled one of my songs Iowa fights and expressed the Hope that i who had Given this song to the University would feel that i was a part of it and one of those iowans who As a result of All this i simply could not give up.
